in the united states had to be ground and because of money and power and they always say van dare was like family to bush. we're dealing with these leaders that making deals back home deals with people and then all of the sudden they come back you know and roost here and then you wonder why we're being attacked. we're spending our own money to give this money to these people for energy to come back and kill us with our own money. when we going to wake up? you know? it's like we're being directed in one way and then when we make deals with these people they're suppose to be the good guy and look what happens. host: thanks for the call. "washington post" says al qaeda benefits for decades worth of miss stepped in yemen. first of all u.s. commandos are trained encounter tactics. many say the war could arrive too late to change the trajectory in yemen. since the u.s.s coal attacked the nation has been past toward the illusion that the government is weak to control swats in the country. it's stretched thin and separatist movement in the south. it's got high employment unemployment rate and al
do nothing, that health care costs will continue to strangle small businesses in the united states, will continue to further increase their grip around the throats of families in the united states and all we hear when we go back to our districts is about the cost of health care. and this is president obama's attempt and the attempt of the democrats to try to fix this problem. by doing absolutely nothing we're going to see an $1,800 a year increase in the average family of four's health care costs next year. and then another $1,800 the following year and another $2,000 and it will just keep escalating to the point where it eats up the whole family budget and you're paying more and getting less in coverage, really. so it's eating up the whole family budget, less money to spend on tuition, less money to go on a vacation, less money to increase your family's quality of life. maybe move into a better neighborhood, a better school district. and all of these things are not available to families because of the increased cost in health care. and so doing nothing allows that to continue beca

requirements for individuals lying to the united states. every individual applying to the united states from anywhere in the world who has an itinerary are passed for from nations that are sponsors of terrorism or countries of interest are in charge go through -- are required to go through enhanced screening. others will go through random threat based enhanced screening. at airports throughout the u.s. we have airport law enforcement officials and security measures but seen and unseen. i want to express our thanks for the traveling public for their patience with the increased security measures. i want to thank the department of homeland security personnel who have been engaged on a day- to-day basis to implement them since christmas. today i would like to describe to you five of the recommendations that are included in our report to the president. first, there needs to be an evaluation and modification of the criteria and process used to create the terrorist watch list. this will involve the border, and security and other members of the intelligence community. the effort will include evaluat
in the history of the united states in the last administration after we got hit on 9/11, we had to form the department of homeland security because all of these agencies -- the cia, the fbi, the national security agency, local law enforcement, nobody could talk to one another. so here we are. did that work? did that really work or was this just the due diligence of american bureaucracy just not working? what happened here? oh, but we got to pin it on obama. we can't wait to pin it on him because he's weak on terror. you know, when this is all washed out, we are going to find out -- and we'll dig out the sound bites because they're in the archive. i remember joe lieberman, oh, we just have to have the rearrangement of government so we can protect america. i remember all that. i remember dick cheney coming out and saying that we have to do this because we're going to get hit again, that we just -- well, can we just say this? we kind of got lucky on christmas day, that there were some people that got after it and it was a failed attempt? but we knew about the red flags, we had the intel, i
to help haiti address its own problems. many haitian americans living in the united states have technical expertise in areas such as agriculture, education, health care and infrastructure and would like to return to haiti to assist their people. my bill creates a mechanism to transfer this knowledge in order to meet the needs and the goals of haiti. beyond that we need to ensure that we find other innovative ways to build human capacity, such through education alex changes, programs like i have proposed and other members, the chirly chisholm act, now more than ever, haiti needs the support of its neighbor to the north. even as we deal with our own problems during these tough economic times, we must not turn a blind eye to the untold human suffering just off our shores. today we express our continued support for haiti, we stand in solidarity with the haitians and the haitian americans who have lost loved ones, with the united states citizens still trapped on the island. we stand in solidarity with the rescue workers who have devoted their time and their treasure to help people they do not
lines and communities that once prided themselves of being the bread basket of the western united states. they would have heard about the frustration of seeing produce imported from china being handed out in these food lines to the very same american farmers who once applied the same produce to the -- supplied the same produce to the american world -- to the entire world. they would have seen the anger as the absent interior secretary's testimony to the committee was played back in which mr. salazar admitted that the obama administration has the authority to turn the pumps back on but chooses not to do so because that would be, quote, like admitting failure. there is some good news this afternoon, the day after our forum in fresno, the interior secretary relented to the extent of releasing 350,000 to 400,000 acre-feet of already allocated water to the central valley, having demonstrated the authority to release water that central farmers already own he now needs to follow through and release the watter that is being held hostage to the delta smelt. meanwhile, mr. nunes of california has
the united states and japan, between the foreign minister and secretary clinton. they're really starting to cement their relationship. i can sense the chemistry and the trust developing between the two. that's deeply gratifying. in addition, the secretary gave a speech really outlining -- to interact with asia when it comes to its fledgling international organizations. and so even though the trip was abriefiated, i think we got quite a bit of work done. as p.g.a. indicated, this is today we're marking the 50th anniversary of the u.s.-japan security alliance, the security partnership. it's no exaggeration to say that it has been the cornerstone and the foundation of everything that we've managed to accomplish over the course of the last few generations inin asia. and we hear this not just from japanese friends but throughout the region. over the course of the last couple of months, as the united states and japan worked together on a series of challenging matters, one of the things that's been most interesting and gratifying is how much we hear from other countries in the region, from sout
it is that defines what health insurance is acceptable if you're an individual citizen in the united states? is it the individual citizen? is it the 22-year-old that says i can't afford health insurance right now and i'm very healthy and i'm making the decision not to get health insurance, is he the one that decides what acceptable health insurance coverage is? of course, the answer is no. no, the answer is that the federal government knows what you need better than you do. and so the federal government is going to mandate that you have this coverage, and they're going to tell you what kind of coverage it is and you got to buy it. now, this raises kind of an interesting legal point, and that is, if the government mandates thaw have something or buy -- that you have something or buy something, isn't that essentially a tax increase? is that when you mandate that somebody has to buy a particular product, is that something that the federal government should be doing in this particular area? is it even constitutional? when it is a mandate, is it essentially a tax increase? or pay 2.5% of income

and ally to united states and the partnership between our countries is -- a new beginning, based on mutual respect and mutual interest that the president called for in cairo. we will discuss how to deepen and broaden our partnership. among the matters that we consulted on -- the situation in yemen is a top concern. how can we work together and with others to stabilize yemen? assist in securing its borders and providing for its people in combating al qaeda? the instability in yemen is a threat to regional and global stability. and we are working with qatar and others to think of the best way forward to duck -- to try to deal with the security concerns. certainly, we know that this is a difficult set of challenges but they have to be addressed. i also thank the prime minister for their efforts to facilitate an end to the crisis in darfur and to promote security and stability in the broader middle east as well as africa. we both have a shared, mutual interest in moving towards a comprehensive peace between israelis and palestinians. we share the goal of an amendment -- an independent and viab

by terrorists against the united states. it disturbs me a little when i think that we are too eager to say there's no longer a war on terror because we're no longer at war with terrorists. i believe we are at war with terrorists. i believe they continue to declare war against us and continue to train for it. they continue to implement terrorist schemes, whether it be in the middle east or attempt to carry the schemes out in the united states. i think we should understand that. if we do, we maximize the effort we put into intelligence and gathering information that can disrupt them and we adopt policies that don't assist them, don't expose what we know to them, because every time we increase what we share with the terrorists through our information that we hand out in the world generally, it makes the terrorists a bit more capable. >> neil: we are learning, general, speaking to you at the detroit metro airport, authorities are questioning three to five passengers from saudi arabia about this incident. there's a connection beyond what we fear and again, on a flight coming from abroad here, what do

respected private business, revered private business more than we have now in the united states, that other nations have more pro-growth policies than we do, are more natural resource oriented than we are, less tax oriented, less exposure to budget deficits that we do here in america. remember the other night anna dark yoe jim hackett told us ghana and algeria are easier to deal with than the united states in doing business. algeria. read "savage war and peace," watch the. these are more investor friendly than the u.s.? if china is better than capitalist america, why shouldn't ghana be a hot bed of investment? what's safe for the united states? what's safer? we're going to talk about developed countries after the break. that's called a tease in tv speak. now i want to highlight the safest developing ones with terrific stocks to shock you -- that's right, i'm going to shock you out of your complacency. brazil, china and peru. that's right, you heard me. brazil, china and peru are all safe countries to put your money in. in many ways safer than the united states, because they do not favor a d
